I have this report where I sum on a price field for different dates.

Se attached pictures.

How do I make it so the user can type in a date interval before running the report, where only the dates selected are used ?

Hope anybody can help me on this :-)

It's pretty simple. Use the "Advanced Search" and select the "Between" search parameter and select your dates.
Not sure if you can hide the report before doing a search. Someone else may know.

But the problem is that you can only do that AFTER the report is generated for the first time. using all the records it takes VERY LONG time to generate.

Instead of sending user to the report page initially, send them directly to the Advanced Seach page.

That's a great suggestion - and simple solution. I forgot to mention that Search properties has the option "Hide data until search", which I was using. But going to the search page first is even better.
